Water Friday Summer Fun Album!

What better way to stay cool than to take a trip to the Kissimmee Lakefront water and play park? Friday, July 1st, Poinciana Christian Preparatory School took a field trip to the Kissimmee Lakefront to fully enjoy the hot Florida summer day. God blessed us with the perfect weather and a pleasant breeze and a clear day while we were at the Lakefront.  As per our Summer Fun program, our students enjoyed free pizza to fill the stomachs after they played and had fun.

Poem Week: Featuring Kaladia B. Chaney

The ABC's of My Hope (An acrostic poem by Kaladia B. Chaney)

The ABC’s of My Hope

(An acrostic poem by Kaladia B. Chaney)

Always endeavoring to walk in integrity
Believing faithfully in a God I cannot see;
Caring enough for my well being creates a better me.
Deciding to live my life thoroughly.

Energized with purpose I can face my days with peace
Following my passion to live throughout eternity;
Growing everyday – spirit, mind, and body
Having a hope that’s greater than life itself brings clarity.

Influenced by my parents – their values I uphold
Joining their stand to maintain a sacred legacy;
Keeping the faith I am bold
Lowering down I bow to His majesty.

Morals are not enough I must walk righteously
Negotiating is not an option in the hand I’ve been dealt you see;
Opportunities I am given I must choose wisely
Prepared to accept the consequences whatever they may be.

Quivering in my mind battling soul against spirit – spirit against soul
Rationalizing where this rabbit whole ends I don’t know;
Satisfied in Him I gain the promise victory
Trusting Him with my all I experience prosperity.

Ultimately, I shall persevere it is my destiny
Victory! I cry aloud. Oh taste and see;
Wash me cleanse me and I shall be
How eXcellent is Your name Oh how I praise thee

Yes, this is the hope I hold on to dearly,
Zealous till Christ be formed in me.

PCPS Pie Day!

Our PCPS Senior came up with a brilliant idea for a fundraiser!  Students had the opportunity to purchase a "pie" (a plate full of whip cream) and cream a high school senior and/or select staff this past Friday, April 15th.  Mrs. Santiago, Mrs. Montaz, Principal Tullis, and Director Whiteacre were all good sports! Watch the video to have a good laugh!

If you would like to enroll and join the fun, schedule an appointment by calling us today! (407) 749-2078

He is the Potter

Have you ever played with Play-Doh when you were younger? What’s great about clay? You, the potter, can shape and mold it to whatever you want it to be.

If Play-Doh was a person:

The process of being shaped isn’t always a pleasant experience. The clay is squished and twisted and molded constantly until the desired creation is made. Just as God molds us into what he wants us to be, we will go through challenges that will shape us into the masterpiece God desire’s us to be.

A good Potter knows exactly what tools to use to create the masterpiece that is YOU.

No matter what you go through in life, don’t give up. He knows to mix up just the right colors and just the right amount of clay into just the right shape to make the masterpiece that is YOU. But the only way He can shape you is if you don’t give up, keep on moving forward, keeping faith in your Potter. Whenever you get knocked down, get back up. As long as there is still time on the clock, we are still living. God is molding us. So we don’t give up and we keep on moving.

Michael Jordan

What did Michael Jordan, the one of the best basketball players in the NBA have to go through before he was considered a champion?

  • He missed over 9,000 shots
  • He lost 300 games
  • He faced 8 years of defeat
  • He faced 756 games before he became a champion

Miss it or make it, are you willing to take the shot? Only way we can succeed and get stronger is to never give. He decided to not give up, give in, he became stronger.

2 Corinthians 4:7-18

We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.

We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies.

Yes, we live under constant danger of death because we serve Jesus, so that the life of Jesus will be evident in our dying bodies. So we live in the face of death, but this has resulted in eternal life for you.

But we continue to preach because we have the same kind of faith the psalmist had when he said, “I believed in God, so I spoke.” We know that God, who raised the Lord Jesus, will also raise us with Jesus and present us to himself together with you. All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits arebeing renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

God is the potter and you are the clay. He is molding you and shaping you into his masterpiece. So when people see you, they will say, “Wow… is that the same young man/woman?” You might be going through the storm right now, but just hang in there. Because the rainbow is soon to follow.
